Red Hat Well, here on OSNews, there has been plenty of discussion about Red Hat 8, what it is, what it isn't, the Bluecurve look and many other features and issues. I ordered Red Hat 8 Personal Edition and decided to see how close Red Hat 8 may be to a distribution that Joe and Jane User could install and use.

I'm happy to say that it easily connected to my wife's printer under Windows, and I've never had any luck with that before with Linux or FreeBSD. I'm posting this from 8.0, which I downloaded last night. My only complaint is that I don't like the default background ;) . Also, there is no ntfs kernel module. I'm pretty sure they used to. Oh, and I can't mount my FreeBSD partition for some reason. I probably do have other complaints, but I think Redhat is deservedly the leader in Linux distros after seeing this.
